Dear Members,

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we are in full support of practicing social distancing. Our tennis courts are still available to members for free and to non-members for $10. That being said, If you choose to play tennis it’s recommended that you do so with another friend or family member that is also taking precautions and to keep a safe distance of at least 6 feet. On another note, we are looking forward to fully opening up the club this Memorial day if it is safe to do so.  Take care and stay safe!

Edgewood Gym Closes Tonight at 5pm per State of Connecticut Mandate.   We hope to re-open April 1st, 2020.

Edgewood – COVID – 19 & Membership/Tennis Updates

Dear Members:
 
We have always thought of our members as a family. We are working to keep Edgewood cleaner than we keep our own homes. Your protection and safety is our utmost concern. We do trust that our members are very diligent in cleaning the equipment after they use it, but for the next two weeks we will have a full staff at Edgewood making sure that everything is continually cleaned. If you have any questions or concerns please ask the staff member.
 
MEMBERSHIP: We would like to thank all of our members that have already taken advantage of the EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT. Given recent events we have decided to extend that deadline indefinitely.
 
CAMP: Camp dates are filling quickly. The last day of school is uncertain at this point so we are taking reservations for the first week, beginning June 22nd, and you will not be charged until we know the date.
 
Tennis Courts: The courts are available to both our members(free) and non-members($10). Everyone is welcome to schedule a court, but we ask that SOCIAL DISTANCING play a role in your decision making process. Edgewood supports all state and federal guidelines.
